I see, I need to get back on that list.

Kigdom Law starts out with a blank page.  Then someone starts adding things
to it.

That same withing six weeks could be added to any of the Champion events.
In fact it would be better to have a separte "Crown's Champions" tourny.
But they won't want another event to raise money for the Kingdom.

But until it makes it's way into Kingdom law, we're just a bunch
